On Thursday, my friend Lisa came over and together we made her signature Cabbage Soup and she helped me with my first attempt at a Cherry Pie (recipe to come). I am not exaggerating when I tell you that Lisa's Cabbage Soup is by far the best soup I've had all winter. The cabbage and carrots make it sweet and the beef broth, marjoram leaves and scallions give it a bit of a kick. You get lots of protein from the broth and kielbasa too. It's a meal unto it's own and doesn't really need anything else. We made a huge pot which allowed plenty for leftovers. Lisa makes this soup every winter and the recipe is a combination of her family's recipe and the recipe for Pork and Cabbage Soup. Please find an excuse and make this soup. I promise that you will not regret it.


1-32 oz box of beef broth
1 packet of beef boullion
2-1/2 cups of water

1 chopped onion
1 small head of savoy cabbage chopped

3 red potatoes cubed

3 cloves of garlic minced

2 carrots chopped
3 celery hearts chopped
1 pound of turkey kielbasa halved and sliced

1 teaspoon of dried marjoram leaves
salt and pepper to taste
chopped scallions

Makes 6 servings

Heat up the beef broth, boullion and water in a large soup pot.

Chop your onion.

Chop some savoy cabbage. Make sure you cut out the middle section which is too touch to cook. Cut the cabbage head in half, then cut the halves into fourths. Cut out the tough part by cutting in at an angle. Cut into shreds.

Add cabbage and onion to pot and bring the pot to a boil.

In the meantime, chop your celery and carrots. The celery heart leaves are delicious so make sure you use those. Add to the pot.

Cube your red potatoes and add to the pot. Also add your minced garlic.

Cut the turkey kielbasa link in half and cut each half lengthwise down the middle. Then cut across to get half-moon slices. Add to the pot and stir.

Bring the pot to a rolling boil then lower the heat and simmer for 20 minutes or until the potatoes are cooked.

Serve hot and top with scallions. Lisa often serves this with some nice homemade cornbread. Enjoy!
